Kent Beer Festival will feature 62 real ales from all over the UK

Crabble Corn Mill are hosting their annual beer and cider festival in Dover for the 16th year in a row.

The event will be held on Friday May 25 until Sunday 27.

Live music will be performed and hot food will be served over the weekend, as well as a variety of ales and cider from around the UK.

Anthony Reid, 45, is the general manager at Crabble Corn Mill and organiser of the event, he believes that 1400 people are expected to attend over the weekend.

He said: “We started our first year of the festival with just seven beers and no cider.

“Over the 16 years, we have gradually increased the beers due to the festival being so popular and it is now rated as one of the best beer festivals in Kent.

“We currently have 62 beers and 30 different ciders available this year, and we are expecting about 1400 people over the whole of the weekend as this will be our 16th year doing the festival.

“The Mill itself is owned by an independent charity called Crabble Corn Mill Trust and currently has seven Trustees on the board, so all profits from the festival go into the up-keep of Crabble Corn Mill.

“Our next event will be the October Cider Festival and this will be followed by our Halloween event which over the past five years has proved to be a massive success with all tickets being completely sold out.”

You can buy tickets for the beer and cider festival and upcoming events at or at Crabble Corn Mill in Dover.
